How to get Characters

In OPTS, you get characters by collecting medals. You acquire the character as a 1-star when you get your first 3 medals, then evolve them up to 6-star as you get more medals. Collecting more medals after you reach 6-star will increase the character’s Luck stat.

Medals drop from battle or first-clear bonus. At launch, only the medals of most of the Straw-hat crew (Sabaody costume, pre-timeskip), and Rebecca are available as drops. Events-only characters will be available on event islands for a limited time.

Although some medals drop randomly on various islands, some medals drop more often on certain islands. Here is the list of the best places to farm each medal.

  • Luffy*: East Island (東の島)、West Island (西の島)、North Island (北の島)
  • Zoro: East Island (東の島)
  • Nami: West Island (西の島)
  • Sanji: North Island (北の島)
  • Chopper: Sabaody Archipelago (シャボンディ諸島)
  • Brook: Fishman Island (魚人島)
  • Usopp: Punk Hazard (パンクハザード)
  • Rebecca: Dressrosa (ドレスローザ)

* Normal mode only

Note that:

  • In general, it’s faster to farm Hard mode (if you’re strong enough) since you get more medals (up to 6-7) per run compared to the Normal mode counterpart.
  • Stages with story bosses (e.g. Smoker, Kuma) also tend to drop more medals. The name of their stages usually end with その3.
  • The drop rate is higher when playing multiplayer than single mode.
  • Your current island is always displayed below your Rank.

About the starter islands:

You are asked to pick your starter when you start the game:

  1. Zoro: East Island (東の島)
  2. Nami: West Island (西の島)
  3. Sanji: North Island (北の島)

These three islands are currently mutually exclusive to one another; if you started on East Island, you cannot go to West or North on your own. You need a friend who is or was last on that island, and choose “Go to their plaza” on their profile. Note that if the friend is or was last on Fishman Island, that’s where you will end up, of course. And because you are a guest from East Island, you cannot start any quests and can only join the games started by other players. For this reason, you also never unlock Hard mode for these islands.


Yellow button on the bottom left: “Go to their plaza”


The easiest way is to be your own friend. If you have another device or emulator, make a side account, befriend your main, and stick the side account on your desired island. Even when the side account is offline, choose “Go to their plaza” anyway. You’ll get a error message about the Plaza having expired, but you will still be on the correct island.

26/04/16 Update:

Good news for people without side accounts; you can now enter these plazas using plaza ID. The plaza would be expired but you’ll be on the island you want.

Only for Japanese server!

    The plaza id didn’t work on my phone

    • Mushroom says:

      Hi, iGreen, I’ve checked and the plaza IDs still seem to be working. You should get an error message about being unable to enter that specific plaza, and then still end up on your indicated island, where you will be able to join quests started by others. A common cause of it not working may be lettercase: the IDs are case sensitive, so do check that you enter them exactly as you see them here. If that isn’t the problem, could you be more descriptive of the error that you encounter?

    what’s the difference between the islands? Does it affect your gameplay?

    • Mushroom says:

      Hi Emperor, the 3 starter islands have different character medals and skill cards as the main drops. There isn’t much difference in terms of gameplay, other than the restrictions mentioned in the above post. After the starter island, the subsequent islands you get to play are the same for everyone.

    Oh I see. Thanks! ^^

    So when u reach 6* ur starter luff can become time skip 2 years later luff? Is it what u mean by evolve???

  5. eukias says:

    This may be late but what’s the best way to farm for new world characters? I’m not strong enough for hard mode n I don’t know if I ever will be. I’m a noob and global isn’t helping lol.

    • Shu says:

      Global is so far almost exactly the same as how Japan began, from what I heard (except global got a lot more lag, and the event started sooner), and event hard mode is definitely doable when we first started too.

      Just first spend time to get 2 pre-timeskip (story mode) characters to 6-star, and farm for food whenever you can to level up the best scene cards you own to buff up stats. In Jpn, the event didn’t start till a week or two later so we had the patience to do this, and event hard mode wasn’t much of a problem. Having Chopper with Panacea will help a lot for any tougher battles. Then once you have the event chars they can replace the pre-timeskip ones.

      It’s probably harder in global since I hear the dcs are very bad, so if players dc you get AI (grey name) who may fight poorly. Personally I would wait till the lag/dc is fixed, but those who don’t want to miss out have to have even more patience I guess.

      • eukias says:

        It would come back eventually then? Thxs I was foolish enough to spend my rainbow coins didn’t wait for 50. Next time I will know that. So should I focus on zoro and chopper or focus on beating story mode? I wanna go one by one so I don’t mess up. Need tips from a pro 🙂

        • Shu says:

          You mean the events? They usually do, esp Zoro and Usopp.

          It’s not that bad. Some people still like single pulls.

          Definitely train Chopper, but only if you have his S.A. Personally I would spend the time to 6* one char from story, say pre-TimeSkip Usopp (or just your fav), while leveling your stat cards. Then when the next event starts you’ll find that you can farm it easily with that char.

          Or, if you have a lot of time, farm easy till you get 6* of the event char, to skip training a pre-TS char.

    whoo does it mean you can loot some skill for a char you cant unlock solo ? thats nuts … anyway its been months but the north blue code dont works

  7. Snipes says:

    Hey Shu,
    I really need your help.. 😀
    I play the global version, which just started and I see people with 6* NW Luffy, how can they get him? The only Event on is the NW Usopp and Zorro Event and I can not find any way to get him, I tried hard and very hard missions, but it’s driving me crazy, maybe you can help answer these questions ^^

    • Shu says:

      The soft release in Canada had the NW Luffy (+ Usopp) event after Usopp and Zoro. When the Canada server became global, they reset to the first event (Usopp and Zoro), so you just wait for the next event.

  9. Bigboy says:

    I play global and I want sanji is there a global code for north island? Help plz

  10. Leo says:

    I started as Zoro and I was able to get to west/north island on global using the same code, but i can’t start a solo quest. Do i have to wait for someone else to start a quest?

    • Shu says:

      It works on global? Lol that’s strange.

      Yeah you’ll be a ‘guest’ on that island so you can’t host quests. You also won’t ever unlock the hard mode there because of that.
